This Brilliant Graphic Shows You Which Country Discovered Every Element In The Periodic Table

When it comes to discovering elements the United Kingdom is at the top of the table.
This periodic table graphic was posted by Google Science Fair on Sunday and shows which nations discovered each element on the periodic table.
Leading the charge, the UK has discovered 24 elements, closely followed by the US with 21, Sweden with 20 and Germany with 19.
A number of old favorites including gold, mercury and copper are listed as ancient discovery and dont have a country of origin.

What a racist chart/table.
What greed, eh?
RACIST.....No African country were listed. But since Blacks built the pyramids its all good.
But I thought the Muslim contributions to science were innumerable.
Jihadium-72 was discovered in the ME and is a critical element there
Of course, a Russian “discovered” the periodic table itself, which was one of the most amazing leaps of science ever, considering that he did it LONG before the actual nature of atomic structure itself was even vaguely understood.
I didn’t see Mexico, Zimbabwe or Saudi Arabia in the mix.
"I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong."
What?? No Mus-lame countries? Obviously this table is racist!
I’m sure North Koreans are taught that Kim Il-sung discovered all of them.
Wasn't it an insane Kenyan who claimed discovery of the fraudulent element "hopeychangieum"?
Who found “Denser than Grain, Rok Hard Stupid”?
No Muslim countries? What are you talking about? Sweden is quite prominent.
It’s because white male chauvinists have a misguided worship of individual rights and ideas of property ownership. An inclusive culture worships mother gaia and so people of color have a more nuanced, holistic outlook that doesn’t discriminate between elements. /s
Obama will be appointing a special science advisor to help the Muslim countries discover new elements for the periodic table. Someone needs to tell him the only ones they’re interested in have already been discovered: uranium (#92) and plutonium (#94)
They have a four space table; earth, air, fire and water.
The most famous pyramids are the Egyptian pyramids built as tombs for the Pharaohs. Therefore there is good reason to believe they were built by Egyptians.
No African country were listed. But since Blacks built the pyramids its all good.
That's because blacks already knew about the elements.
Afer all, it was blacks who brought the elements back from other worlds when they developed intergalactic travel.
It's only ininformed whites who think they "discovered" the elements.
No mulsims countries?????
What is NASA going to do????
Right. So you can't put them into a numbers chart, silly.
And France, and Spain..
Then what caused ya’ll to revert to stone-aged tribalism by the time them whites conquered all ya’ll, Rev?
Well golly gee....look at that! Those pale folks and their “discoveries”....at the expense of all the others.
I’m getting really tired of people saying all cultures are “equal”. That is the biggest load of Bull Squeeze to have ever been spewed around since the days of Adam.
The muslim advances in the science of truck bombs and suicide vests are simply breathtaking.
If you really wanna be razist...then we can talk about the schism between Northern European nations and Southern European nations on this chart.
I say that despite my Spanish/French ancestry...
Truth hurts eh?
Credit where credit is due, and all that...
Fight the Free Sh☭t Nation
Whoops, failed to see the little Russian flag with the US one.
Thanks sent this to a Chemistry teacher friend of mine.
“No Muslim countries? What are you talking about? Sweden is quite prominent.”
UK is now as well...
Quoting from the great WWII statesman Winston Churchills literary work, for which he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1953, has become a criminal offence in the UKas it seems.
Gee, where are the majority islamic countries? With all their great contributions to science, shouldn’t they be well represented?
Egyptians then were white......but you knew that.
Doh!! England also, especially after reading how they have allowed Sharia law into their legal system.
I think obammy will have a few teleprompter words to read to us about this...
No they weren’t....Louis Farakhan said that Africans built the sphinx and that the nose was shot off by white soliders because it showed the power of the black man.
And if you cant trust Louis, who can you trust?
Oh no, not more old, white guys. I don’t think I can take it.
And besides, I always sensed the Periodic Table was racist; I just didn’t know why. Now I know.
In other words, without Dead White European Men (and some few women, I guess) the world would be not even half as advanced as it is.
As a girl I didn't grasp the genius of the Periodic Table until I read a science fiction story about it. It concerned an Earth exploration group that had landed on once-inhabited planet but could make no sense of the language or culture of the long-dead creatures. Then a young woman with the exploration team recognizes the Periodic Table, which becomes a Rosetta Stone for them. The point was that the table was not merely our convenience but a universal truth. I wish I could remember the name or author of the story, but it was many years ago.
Lets be more specific. How many were discovered by women or diversity types?
Flags and the Periodic Table! Things just got meta for Sheldon Cooper.
“Im sure North Koreans are taught that Kim Il-sung discovered all of them.”
North Koreans are the Devil. Bobby Boucher’s mamma discovered all of the elements.
That story is "Omnilingual" by H. Beam Piper. Excellent story, excellent author.
